Why would Ahrar al Sham wait for days to make this claim?
It's obvious why Jerusalem Post would publish this news. (Reinforces propaganda that Israeli media is always pushing)
Could this news story be provided as an ego boost for Israeli backed terrorists?
An incentive for them to continue the fight?
All non credible news stories provide us opportunity to discuss the objectives of such propaganda? What do you think?
According to the media office of Ahrar al-Sham, the two factions, in coordination with local jihadists who were located at the Russian military base, decided to bomb the car after they observed a gathering of senior Russian generals at the military base.
Ahrar al-Sham claims that dozens of Russian generals were killed and injured in the explosion. According to the movement, the announcement of the terror attack was delayed until Wednesday to ensure that the jihadists who committed the attack returned safely to opposition territories.
The military base that was hit by the car bomb is considered one of the most important military centers of the Russian forces on the Syrian coast, located some 15 kilometers from Latakia.
The belated announcement of the car bombing came shortly before the Syrian truce was scheduled to start on Saturday. Russia and the US have already announced that the ceasefire will not apply to ISIS and al-Nusra Front, but in light of this terror attack, Russia might demand the exclusion of Ahrar al-Sham as well.
